Join Environmental Scientist, Freediver and Wildlife Photographer Jono Allen and Australian Freediving representative Adam Sellars on a special journey to Maldives as we take you up close for a trip-of-a-lifetime at the island of Fuvahmulah.
Rising from the blue waters of the equator, Fuvahmulah is a one Island Atoll in the Deep south of the Maldives. Owning its location on the Chagos-Laccadive volcanic ridge, the island’s exposure to oceanic swell and deep surrounding Waters have created the perfect conditions for expansive reef systems and rare marine pelagic megafauna to thrive.
The island boasts numerous dive locations including a vast oceanic plateau at 50 metres depth to the South while Fuvahmulah’s pristine coral reefs allow divers to look down into waters reaching over 1000, depth just a few metres away from the island’s rolling white sand beaches.
No island in the Maldives compares to Fuvahmulah in regards to its abundance of marine life and megafauna. Known as “Shark Island” among locals, and the “Galapagos of the Indian Ocean” among international visitors, Fuvahmulah is home to a large variety of sharks species including the world’s largest population of tiger sharks with a resident population of almost 200 individuals, as well as witness to passing migrations of Oceanic Manta rays.
